Tips for Visiting San Marcos
Eat local when you are in town! Enjoy Mediterranean food at Nostimo Café, or Italian Garden for the best margarita pizza in Central Texas.

Tips for Parents & Family Members
As your student transitions to and through college, ask them about their own expectations of college. Their needs might change while in college, and expectations might change as well. Finding a balance between your expectations and their expectations can help ease conflict or emotions on both sides. Open up a dialogue to best hear and support your student.
